Subject: Wow!
Shame on me. I kinda gave up thinking I would find this whole show. I have the second set SDB, and it's very nice. Now here we have the whole show and it's not bad at all. Brings back wonderful memories of sitting third row center completely wrapped up in the incredible music (I imagine the brownies had something to do with that!) Easily in the list of my top 10 concerts. Thanks to all.

I had no idea shows from '72 would still be posted, let alone Charlie Millers! These Milwaukee shows are the only October shows from '72 I (now) have, and I have most of '72. I'm buying the few Europe shows now available that I don't own, and these audience gems help me remember my roots and not get too fancy!

These are legendary shows. The PAC is the house for the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. People have to remember what was available for field recording back then. The bass may be a little thin, but its all there. The acoustics of the PAC weren't the best. Thanks to the legendary local taper, Charlie, Dewey, John W.....

Subject: Great show
I think you guys are spoiled. This is a fine sounding recording.

Subject: Agreed
I'm the same way on this one. I was really excited when I saw it came out, and it's great that the full show now circulates and I am of course very grateful to the taper and to Mr. Miller and all involved in preserving and sharing this recording, but the quality was a bit of a disappointment. I'll probably use the aud for the patch in TOO, but other than that, I don't see the first set getting much repeated listening around here.

Subject: It Is What It Is
The sound quality is what it is, but the performances here are incredible once you get used to the recording. Be sure to at least check out the "Philo Stomp" beginning around 8:55 of the Other One. A truly amazing jam.

Subject: well
I take no joy in saying that this is very hard to listen to. It's a gift that it surfaced after all these years and received the attention of the dedicated Mr. Miller. The taper and his friends knew not to screw things up by chattering through songs. But the vocals are distant to the point of being nearly inaudible, and everything is soft in the extreme. Of interest if you're collecting everything from 1972.
